The principles of universal design accommodate not only the disabled but also people of varying sizes, shapes, abilities, and ages (traditional designs are based on able-bodied, nonelderly adults who make up less than 15 percent of the population). Peterson, a certified designer, discusses how kitchens and bathrooms can be built with these principles in mind. Numerous illustrations show how floor plans, storage, fixtures, and appliances can be configured to allow their use by anyone. A must for every library that can afford it.
